Outlook through Thursday August 24:
Surf is expected to trend down along east facing shores this weekend
as the trades weaken slightly. A small south-southeast swell is
expected to peak late Friday, and then gradually subside this
weekend. A small, long-period southwest swell is forecast to arrive
Saturday, and continue into early next week. Surf will likely remain
below the High Surf Advisory criteria along all shores through the
middle of next week.

Surf heights are forecast heights of the face, or front, of waves. The
surf forecast is based on the significant wave height, the average
height of the one third largest waves, at the locations of the largest
breakers. Some waves may be more than twice as high as the
significant wave height. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near
any surf zone.
